Although he no longer feels out of place with the Winnipeg Jets, Patrik Laine continues to produce. Thursday night, against the Calgary Flames, the Finn scored two goals, including overtime victory, when his team won 4-3.
Early in the overtime period, Laine orchestrated a two-on-one climb. The maverick slashed through the air at first, but recovered quickly and his shot defeated Jacob Markstrom, who was playing a game opener in the Flames uniform.
Laine added an assist to end the game with three points. Kyle Connor followed suit, scoring the tying power-play goal late in the second period. Mark Scheifele also scored for the Jets.
Calgary had given a two-goal priority after just one third. Matthew Tkachuk, Johnny Gaudreau and Elias Lindholm moved the ropes, but Connor Hellebuyck closed the door afterward.
The recipient of the Vézina trophy made 23 saves.
